Betting

Forecast

Affina (9/4), Cuban Heel (10/3), Deadly Accurate (9/2), Corazon Espinado (9/2), Blaze Of Hearts (11/2), Zlatan (6/1), Duke Of North (9/1)

Verdict
Corazon Espinado and Affina both want to dominate, and the pair could compromise each other, which would help set things up for CUBAN HEEL, who was second to the first-named here in April, and has not had the rub of the green subsequently. Duke of North has won twice over C&D this season, and is also considered having had excuses over a trip too sharp last time.
  1. Cuban Heel
  2. Duke Of North
  3. Corazon Espinado
